Found A Flashlight That Yall Might Like
#1
I was walking around walmart and noticed they had cleared out some flashlights to make room for the new models. They had this http://www.energizer.com/flashlights-lig...light.aspx on clearence for 12.88. It runs aa, aaa, and c's so you can find something to feed it lying around the house. It gives off a decent amount of light and run time depends on the batterys with the larger batterys giveing more time. Might be a good thing to get for trade fodder or give it to your favorite sheeple so worse case senario they could dig the batterys out of the tv remote and have some light. Heck it even comes with two energizer alkaline aa's.

I've got two of them. Bought another one as a two is one, one is none type thing. The beam has a really bright spotlight effect which would be good for around the house but I wouldn't want to read a book with it. I just like the can take multiple sizes of batterys thing in an emergency. Won't replace my 2D led Maglight but is good in a pinch.

Cyblade,

What would it take to replace your 2D LED Maglite? I am not trying to be a smartass and sorry for the thread hijack. I am just curious. I ask because I used to love my Maglites but I am tired of alkaline cells leaking and ruining my lights. This is what it took to replace mine:

I don't know I have alot of lights but the Maglight is the one clamped to my desk so it's close at hand. I've always had maglights around so I'm just useta them. Does that take 123's ???

It can take 2x 123's if you use a lamp assembly that can handle 6 volts. Most people will opt to use a single 3.7 volt 18650 li-ion cell. The battery tube is slightly larger in diameter than a surefire to accomodate the slightly larger diameter 18650 cell, which means that the 123's are gonna rattle around. A dampening tube could be placed around the 123's.



I'll admit that there is one area that this light will not replace the maglite - it would be pretty ineffective as a club, but longer tubes and larger heads can be had that still use this technology. My flashlight serves me as a pocket flashlight.

This has replaced my old EDC light.

The old light was an Inova X2 but I always found it ended up in my bag and not on my person. I am a believer in commonly available battery types and try to exclusively use rechargeable so AA and AAA are the only flashlights I carry any more. Dont get me wrong a full size mag-lite is great for security work and a Surefire is great for tactical work but I want cheap and small so now I carry the one I linked to. Don't believe me that its a good light just read the 4000 plus reviews lol.



Oh and thanks Cyblade for pointing out a good find. <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/thumbsup.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':thumbsup:' />

Is that right, B2timid? The price on that is $3.50?? That would be worth a look just for the price. Is that a bright light?



I've been narrowing my search for a good/small flashlight, and have been thinking about the 2AA Mini Maglite Pro+. Thoughts?

That's right, $3.50 and free (or really cheap) shipping strait from China or Malaysia. It is rather bright. Brighter than those two AAA mini mag LED also with a whiter light and a beam you can focus either diffuse or spot. The case seems to be decent quality aluminum with serviceable threading and dinky little o-rings that should do fine for a light shower but probably wouldn't trust to the dunk test. I ordered five and all of them function fine with no issues. I got the single mode black ones because I reasoned a less complicated switch might be more durable. As for longevity I have only had them a month but hoping for the best. Oh and they run on a single AA. Been using energizer rechargeable and only swapped out once this month so battery life seems pretty good for such a bright light using only one AA. Probably 4 out of 5 stars when I do the Amazon review.



Oh and about the mag-lite pro, its almost exactly the same size as the Inova X2 I used to use. I'm sure its a great light but too big for pocket carry. Thats why they come with that nylon holster <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rolleyes' />/> .

I quit using mini-maglites because they would quit on me after a month or two. I use them alot, (I keep a flashlight on my belt at all times) and I really hate it when I need a light and it won't work.
